Genesis (Program #119) – The Spiritual Significance of Joseph and Benjamin (1)

Today we are going to look at Joseph, a fruitful bough and Benjamin a ravenous wolf from the final passages of Genesis.  We are in Genesis chapter 49 today.  This is one of those chapters that is all-inclusive…

Hebrews (Program #48) – The History of Faith and Its Witnesses

In sports, there is a universal factor called the “home court advantage”. The competitors gain a distinct advantage by the cheering and encouragement of an arena full of fans. Have you ever realized that such is the case in our own running the race of the Christian life?

Genesis (Program #118) – The Manifestation of Maturity (6)

We come again today to the blessings that Jacob gave to his 12 sons near the end of Genesis.  Today we have the final two, Joseph and Benjamin.  Witness Lee will again point out that these two really complete one another.  What does this mean?

Hebrews (Program #47) – The Unique Way of Faith and Faith’s Definition

The bible says faith is the substance for the substantiating of the unseen things.  Faith is what makes God real to us, the way our eyes make light real to us.

Today we will spend most of our time looking at the unique way of faith and the Bible’s definition of faith.  And as a preface, we need to see that Hebrews opens the matter of faith to us only after the presentation of some serious warnings to Christians, to believers.  What is the general point of these warnings?

Genesis (Program #117) – The Spiritual Significance of Dan, Gad, Asher, and Naphtali

Quite a lovely picture as Jacob gathered his 12 sons together to deliver a blessing.  Today we are going to focus on the group of Dan, Gad, Asher and Naphtali.  Regarding Jacob’s speaking of these blessings, Jacob is not giving moral exhortation and surely he is not engaging in an exercise of eloquence or natural speaking ability.  In sharp contrast, Jacob is prophesying by speaking forth blessings upon his 12 sons.  In order to speak with blessings in this way, we need to reach a stage that we are mature in the divine life.  This speaking is full of life, is full of insight.  It is profoundly accurate and amazing in the way it unveils as a whole God’s economy with His people…

Hebrews (Program #46) – The Kingdom Reward and the Gaining of the Soul

Christians and non Christians alike are familiar with the term “eternal perdition”. And without doubt the bible does present such a matter. But there is another matter also presented in the Bible that precious few understand and that is the matter of dispensational punishment. Again today, we will contrast these two great truths from the book of Hebrews on the life study of the Bible.

Today we have part two of the message we began yesterday and it does deal in some detail with this matter – and that is the matter of dispensational punishment – and we’re contrasting that to eternal perdition. Today we’re going to see a development of this related to the gaining of the soul.

Genesis (Program #116) – The Manifestation of Maturity (5)

Jacob says “I have waited for Thy salvation, O Jehovah”, meaning Dan was such a problem, he didn’t know what else to say but to cry out for God’s salvation.  The good part is God heard it.  So you have a man who is all of a sudden victorious.  Where did the victory come from?  It came from the prayer.

We have Jacob’s speaking to his 12 sons….

Hebrews (Program #45) – Not Eternal Perditon, but Dispensational Punishment

Is it possible for a Christian to lose their salvation? If not, what about the warnings and sober words presented in Hebrews and other books of the New Testament? We continue our focus today on eternal security and dispensational punishment on this life study of the Bible.

Today we bring a frontal assault on some of the old and comfortable notions that many hold that just don’t stand up to the full revelation of the Bible. Our message today is entitled “Not Eternal Perdition, but Dispensational Punishment”. What are some of these traditional and cherished concepts that are going to be challenged by our program today?

Genesis (Program #115) – The Spiritual Significance of the Blessing Prophesied concerning Judah, Zebulun, and Issachar (2)

Today we are going to continue our extended visit to chapter 49 of Genesis.   This wonderful chapter 49 of Genesis,  where Jacob is delivering all the various blessings to his 12 sons.  Of course, in Hebrews, we realize that this was a beautiful, poetic utterance by Jacob but we’ve been also discovering that it is prophetic as well.  How do we know that these blessings have a prophetic and up-to-date meaning that is applicable to us as New Testament believers?

Hebrews (Program #44) – Come Forward to the Holy of Holies and Do Not Shrink Back to Judaism

The call to come forward is a striking element in the book of Hebrews. God’s desire for us is not just to come forward to receive Him for salvation, but we need to live a life of continually coming forward to God in Christ and through the spirit for our daily living. This is our focus today on the life study of the Bible.

The program today is going to begin with a brief review of some of the points that we’ve been covering in our recent broadcasts. Then we are going to launch into an examination of this marvelous phrase that appears at least four times in Hebrews. In the Recovery version, this phrase is translated as “come forward”. It’s really one Greek word but it takes the two words “come forward” to capture the essence of it – and it’s a call from God to His people.
